"I can't eat. I can never eat when I'm in the depths of despair."
It's been a long day for me so I'm going to make this short:

Day 17 - Favorite mini series

I'm going to pretend this is like the Emmys and that TV Movie & Miniseries are one category, and thus my selection is:

Anne of Green Gables: The Movie



Practically perfect adaptation of my favourite book. It delighted me when it first aired on CBC in 1985 and it still delights me today. I'm part of the generation of kids who grew up picturing Megan Follows as Anne Shirley and Jonathan Crombie as Gilbert Blythe. In fact, I'd say all the actors are perfect in their roles and beautifully bring the characters from the page to the screen. I couldn't love it more, and I know I'm not alone in my love for the movie (and the books)!

Sadly, I've only seen part of that show, but it was obviously well done.

Oh, that is too bad! It's all out on DVD now, you should see about tracking it down at some point. It still looks good! :D

It'll have to join the list of several dozen other shows we've been meaning to check out!

Okay, that picture is all I need to make it a wonderful day with no mistakes in it. <3 <3 <3

What a WONDERFUL adaption that was. The only way it could be improved upon was if there were some (Disney'fied) sexy times between Gilbert and Anne - I want more than hugs, dangit! And more schooltime Shenanigans with Gog and Magog. :)

Oh, Anne, I love her talk about each day being perfect with no mistakes in it! I love the picture on my post, I feel Megan Follows really captures Anne's wonder and joy with life.

heeee, well they do get to kiss on the bridge over the Lake of Shining Waters in the Sequel! That was pretty awesome! :D

I blame the internet for telling me all things I love fannishly should have more porniness to them. :D
cordelianne From: cordelianne Date: June 15th, 2010 02:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
heeee! Yes, it *is* the internet's fault! I'm sure it's to blame for my desire for Anne/Diana fic! :D

Aw, I'm glad that you agree! And I am remembering that it did air as a miniseries so it totally counts for this category!
